I have been busy in the garden sowing my vegetable seeds. At the weekend the courgettes, squash and pumpkin seeds went in. I have also planted peppers and tomatoes and have started off the first batch of lettuces. I tend to sow lettuces every week so get a continuous crop throughout the summer. In the vegetable patch I have planted carrots, parsnips, beetroot and spinach. I can already see the parsnips coming up so they will need thinning out. I’m not sure how these seeds will do, as the garden vegetable patch still has fairly poor soil but I intend to sow more in the allotment just as soon as we have a bed ready for them.
